According to a report from Liverpool Echo, despite his move to Real Madrid last summer, Aurelien Tchouameni has been consistently linked with other clubs, including the Reds, due to his limited playing time in his debut La Liga season. The uncertainty surrounding the futures of Merseyside midfielders Jordan Henderson and Fabinho provides for further speculation regarding who can replace them.
Tchuoameni’s Debut Campaign With Real Madrid
Tchouameni had an impressive season during his time in the Spanish capital. Playing a crucial role in Carlo Ancelotti’s squad, the talented French midfielder showcased his abilities with several outstanding performances at the heart of the team’s midfield.
Over the course of the previous campaign, Tchouameni featured in a total of 50 matches for Los Blancos and made significant contributions. He demonstrated his versatility and reliability by excelling in the game’s defensive and offensive aspects. In La Liga, he averaged 1.9 tackles, 1.5 interceptions, 1.5 clearances, 1.2 shots, 0.7 key passes, and 0.8 dribbles per 90 minutes, highlighting his all-around skills.
Moreover, Tchouameni proved to be an excellent distributor of the ball from midfield, boasting an impressive passing accuracy of 93.5% in the Spanish top division (statistics via whoscored). His performances throughout the season were undoubtedly a testament to his talent and potential as a rising star in the world of football.
Considering The Slim Chances Of Liverpool Acquiring Him This Summer, Would It Still Be Prudent For Klopp To Make A Bid?
Speaking on his YouTube channel about the chances of Tchouameni making an exit or, rather, Madrid sanctioning his move to Anfield amid Liverpool’s keen interest, Fabrizio Romano said: “Let me say, from Real Madrid, the message is very clear – they want to keep the player.
“They trust Tchouameni for present and future of the club, so it’s not going to be easy to bring Tchouameni to English football. At the moment, it looks very complicated.
“Also, Carlo Ancelotti was very clear with the player. He told him that he wants Tchouameni to stay at Real Madrid and to be an important player for Real Madrid.
“Let’s see what happens, but from Madrid, they still consider Tchouameni as a crucial part of their project.”
Tchouameni continues to be a vital asset in Ancelotti’s squad, showcasing his ability to anchor the midfield effectively and even contribute creatively in the opponent’s half for Real Madrid.
Given his importance and potential, it would be prudent for Los Blancos to retain him for the foreseeable future. At just 23 years old, the French midfielder has a promising and bright future ahead of him at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
Additionally, with his current contract at the Madrid club running until 2028, Ancelotti has no immediate urgency to consider letting him go this summer. As a result, Jurgen Klopp should explore other alternatives in the transfer market, especially if the Reds face the possibility of Fabinho and Henderson departing, in which case they will need reinforcements.
